    Boomette's Note:

    This is from the issue of June 2006 of Coup de Pouce. Something that looks yummy and quite simple.

      I just enjoyed this for lunch and it was so good. I followed recipe exactly, except cut it down to serve two. I will be making this again. Thanks boomette for another great recipe. Made for 123 tag.

      What a great idea! I cut the tuna in half as I felt it would be too much and thinly sliced the zucchini rather than grating. Made for a very nice lunch. Thanks Boomette!

      Some lively flavors going on between the pepper jack and red pepper pesto - a really delicious lunch or snack. I used Ajvar (Roasted Red Pepper Spread) for the pesto and leftover cooked zucchini instead of grated. I used regular flour tortillas since I didn't have the pesto garlic type. Something totally different if you're having quesadilla burn-out!
